Realty Executives Associates was founded in 1979 by R. Vance Burkey who bought the first origin 100% concept franchise. (The 100% concept draws a much stronger agent). We were the number one firm in our market in 1985 and have held that position for over three decades.  The gap between us and our competitors is growing daily.  We have evolved to be the best perceived Residential firm in East Tennessee with over 500 agents and seven offices.  We have four operating offices, six licensed offices, and 32 employees. The company is run with the philosophy of providing a high level of resources, services, and tools to the productive agent.  We are an agent-driven company that demands professionalism and ethics.  Our operating offices are brokered literally seven days a week to assist our agents and the consumer. Our three larges offices are brokered by principal owners in the firm.

Realty Executives Associates also has a large commercial division with nine agents, two of which hold a CCIM designation.  We have a property management department that handles over 650 residential single-family homes and is in the process of bringing the same level of management to commercial properties.
